Amusingly my guild has used all of the above methods of recruitment, even the illegal one. Our guild palatank for example, swaps back and forth between prot and holy, depending on whether we are doing mount hyjal (he goes prot to make the thing a breeze) or going holy (when there's enough warrior or druid tanks for the raid that night). I think the guild has given him over 1000g since I joined to cover his frequent respecs.It's quite interesting also to note that 'recruiting on par' does not appear to be as hard as it seems. High level raid guilds very often break into pieces due to a million reasons, and that leaves a lot of very good geared and skilled players 'jobless', to the point that many are willing to pay to transfer servers to join an appropriate guild. The guild needs to actively promote their good name over the servers, of course, in order to get new recruits this way. But guildless tier 6 players are more common than one might think. I myself got invited to my current guild via the second method - I got t4 but the guild I applied to really liked my application (and needed more paladins too) so they picked me up, even though they were already 4/5 MH 3/9 BT when I joined. Now I've been in the group that killed Archi and Illidan (with still 2pct6, no less).My best advice if you are in the position I was is to honestly make sure your application is memorable and trustworthy and not just you lumping all your stats onto the page and leave it at that. Applications are most of the time the first contact you have with the guild you are interested in, and everyone knows how valuable first impressions can give.Great article again Ms Lees.

Er I meant I was still wearing 2 pieces of tier 4 while downing Illidan and Archimonde.http://armory.wow-europe.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Doomhammer&n=BalasanQuite embarassing. Going to have to fix that this week (if the tokens drop).
